Do you guys think we’ll see an iMac refresh before Lion comes out? I’m really in need of a desktop computer, and my 24” iMac is in a different part of the world now.

According to this http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#iMac we’re supposed to wait. Wondering how long.

I wish a 30” one will be available, and they ditch the part under the screen. Also I wish they make it thinner, faster and more powerful. :-)

What do you think? Will we see one in April maybe?

They might be releasing it together with Lion.. Considering the iPad 2 has just been released as well I don’t think it would be earlier than halfway in April.

It’ll definitely be faster & more powerfull – not sure if they can thin it down much more for the current price ;) A 30 ” seems like a bit much, but who know..

The new iMac is bound to be pretty great :) I’m guessing on new features in Lion that the new iMac will take full advantage of. I don’t think Apple will be introducing touch to the iMac, but you never know…

anyhoo, I think it’s worth the wait :) 1000,- sure is a lot ;)

Wow. That’s bigger than my current TV.
Can you really work with such screen from a normal desktop distance?

They once stated they researched this intensively and concluded that you just don’t want to touch a vertical surface ;) Touch is one of the things that’ll definitely not come with the new iMac.

My dad’s boss bought a 27” but then returned it because his neck started to hurt from the looking back and forth ;)

I think touch screen is something that will be embedded sooner or later.But not for the next 3-4 generations.

As for no bottom part, that will sure make them look cooler,but probably not gonna happen too soon either.Giving up a basic part of the design would damage the image they’ve created for desktops , because when you think of an iMac you see a display with a plastic/aluminium bottom part under and that is how one should look.

But I am sure we will see some new core tech, maybe the new 6 core CPU from intel that’s been rumored about lately.

October 2010, Steve said:

“We’ve done tons of user testing on this, and it turns out it doesn’t work. Touch surfaces don’t want to be vertical. It gives great demo but after a short period of time, you start to fatigue and after an extended period of time, your arm wants to fall off. it doesn’t work; it’s ergonomically terrible.”

I strongly doubt there will ever be a vertical touch screen from Apple. When Jobs says stuff with that much certainty..
